A few inches above the bottom of the barrel

Well, the time has finally come. My home PC is now just at the level of the minimum recommended requirements for new games, it seems. Here are the recommendations for Oblivion:
  • 3 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
  • 1 GB System RAM
  • ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series, or higher video card
Guess what processor, amount of RAM, and video card I have.

Oh well. I was planning on putting something together at the end of this year anyway. Maybe I'll end up doing it sooner.

Oddly enough, aren't those requirements similar to an upcoming operating system?

Yeah, those requirements are both depressing and glorious. I'm sure you know what I mean.

I want to build a new computer soon, but I didn't want to do it before I move. I don't know how much I trust the movers with a freshly assembled computer. Especially since I'm considering getting my feet wet in the world of watercooling...
